Sunday music spot: Eccard's "When to the Temple Mary Went"

Today the Christian church celebrates the feast of the Presentation of Christ in the Temple. This lovely anthem was written by the composer Eccard for this festival: it is also sometimes sung at Epiphany. (The "Nunc Dimittis" commemorates the same event.)

I previously posted one recording of the beautiful piece at Epiphany three weeks ago: here is another performance, a recording sung by the choir of King's College Cambridge.
